Since the girls got their bicycles for their birthday in June, they really haven't shown too much interest in learning to ride them. We didn't start them on balance bikes or tricycles but went straight to training wheels and I think that's been the problem. Mallory's definitely put the most effort into practicing and today she finally got it! She was so proud of herself and we are, too!
side note: the girls do have helmets which we do make them wear, but Mallory's decision to hop on her bike this afternoon was spur~of~the~moment and if you know her, you know nothing is going to stop her when she decides she's going to do something. For all future bike rides it's safety first!
